I need some help identifing the "it doesn't look like a Predator canopy" canopy. Long story short this was sent to me as a "two piece Predator canopy" and I can't find it anywhere on the Century site. My new one piece canopy and my slightly used () canopy look like predator canopy's the other does not. It's also thinner fiberglass, narrower, taller, has no pre-drilled holes and doesn't fit right.

So I ask to all here, Is this a Predator canopy or what? This is not to plant a seed but it kinda looks like a Hirobo, Kalt or Min-Air canopy? I've only been around R/C heli's for a few years so I'm not familar with the older ones but think I seen something similar at some point.

weird, it does look very similar to a Hirobo Freya canopy, but something about it is not quite right

For the love of the hobby

It looks to be an aftermarket for the Ergo line of helis from Horizon (Pre-Vigor).

It reminds me of some the cheap knock off canopies from Quick World Wide.

Those China canopy's look similar but not exactly like it. I think all could agree it's NOT a Predator canopy.....Correct?
